{Gratitude} Lately

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Lately I've been thankful for new cities and vacations I don't deserve.

For slinging clay with my best.

For thrifted flannels and walks in Cherokee Park.

For velvet noses and open spaces.

For meters with 20 extra minutes.

For simple dinners that satisfy.

For strong legs and friends who encourage.

For afternoon walks when the sun breaks.

And for old things made new again. What have you been grateful for lately? Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough. Happy Tuesday, brave ones.

Thankful for two hour chats over pad thai. And for friends who teach me how to find cream in Whole Foods. Love YOU.

For a hot, challenging wife, friends who will talk to me about things and be gracious to my abrasively loving dog, and trout.

beautiful post. I'm afraid my list would be absurdly long and wouldn't fit in this small comment box if I said all the things I was grateful for. Once I get started I cannot stop and then I start realizing how grateful I am for things like staplers and color printers..... So much to be grateful for.

So grateful to live in a country where on this day I am able to exercise a precious right fought for me by the bravest beings in existence. USA! USA! USA!

Grateful my family on Long Island are safe and well, my son is thriving in college, my true love shares my life, my legs and arms are strong and my heart and mind are open and accepting.

Today I am grateful for my lovely boss who stopped by my hobbit-hole yesterday to drop off a tin of the most amazing local and organic masala chai my taste buds have ever had the pleasure of knowing. It's love.

P.S. Oatmeal with blueberries is a frequent and favorite meal in our household.

Because of my slight obsession to your blog, my husband and I have started a journal of love notes. We write notes to one another and leave it for the other to find. I love finding it wedged in my favorite flats, cuddled next to the grapes in my produce drawer, or nestled in my the cup holder of my car. Thank you for your inspiration, for your honesty, for your wit. Blessings!
